Basket mouth responds

Basket Mouth has finally reacted to his removal as an ambassador for the European Union in Nigeria’s campaign against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence over a 2014 rape joke.

 

The comedian who was one of the Nigerian celebrities chosen to be advocates for the EU’s cause on Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), has released a statement following his removal.

 

Basket Mouth’s removal followed outrage on social media after the comedian was revealed as one of the ambassadors. Twitter users brought up a 2014 joke he made about rape and said he was not fit to represent women and the issues they face.

 

Reacting to his removal, Basket Mouth released a statement on Instagram.

 

He shared a photo collage of a number of women, including his daughter, his wife, Busola Dakolo, and more and wrote:

 

Almost every morning in the blogs, on the news, there’s a picture of a man sitting on the floor pleading, the caption is usually in the line of ‘its the devils handwork’ and the topic is from underage defilement, rape or brutality against a woman or minor. I live in this same world with my most prized possessions my wife, my two daughters, my sisters and women who have built me into the man I am.

I was recently presented an opportunity to create awareness on the efforts of the EU to bring support to fighting this scourge, it was a no-brainer for me. I refused any compensation for it and volunteered to lend my voice because….its our fight, it’s not for the EU…its for my girls’ future.

Unfortunately, a few years ago I shared up a Facebook post that I thought was shedding light through humor to the entitled crude and very present behavioral patterns of some African men who equate spending to sexual favors, but I also realized then that women actually have to face this daily and its harrowing and I deeply apologized for it

I sincerely pray that this does not take away from the most important fight of our lives….the fight to secure our future…because the girl child is our future. I strongly appreciate the EU for this amazing platform to improve our lot, as long as the message reaches the ears of those who need it, then it’s a win. To every woman – our mothers, sisters, lovers, wives, crowns, supporters, prayer partners, foundation, life…. thank you for being who you are. So many times you sacrifice who you are for a man to become who he wants to be. It’s time we all love and and also support you like you do us….cos in your light, we all shine

Bless.

Ubi Franklin and Iyanya link up with Tekno for new project

The feud between Iyanya and his former label partner Ubi Franklin which made headlines has died down. The duo was pictured alongside Tekno working together.

The major fallout between Iyanay and Ubi was centered on alleged forgery, fraud, breach of contract and several other things.

But as the saying goes, “time heals all wounds,” and fast forward to the last month of 2019, they both seem to have buried the hatchet and forgotten old fights, as both friends, alongside Tekno, reunited yesterday at a studio in Lagos where, according to Ubi, a new hit song was worked on.

He wrote:

“Last Night was Epic ⭐️💪
First I had the opportunity to bring @teknoofficialand @iyanya together in the studio and we were blessed to have @selebobo1 join us too and @mademenmusicg New kid @iamrogerlino
It was an epic session with the best Producers in the country right now @[email protected]
Family Back together and our focus is to win and win.”

Comedian, Mr Jollof goes against the tide to support Andy Ruiz

Going against the tide might not always come out right but it makes headlines. Nigerian Comedian, Mr. Jollof, has declared that his support is for Andy Ruiz against Anthony Joshua, against popular opinions.

As the boxing champs prepare for their highly anticipated rematch in Saudi Arabia, on Saturday, Mr Jollof has declared his support for Andy Ruiz against British born Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua.

He took to social media to reveal that Andy is his champ. He also posted another photo of when Andy defeated Anthony Joshua and stated in the caption that Andy can do it again.

See post below;

Mr Jollof

However, a fan took to the comment section of the post to express displeasure and told the comedian to support his own no matter the circumstances.

“Too bad jellof…Support our own ..it’s not a matter of CHOICE ..One day u might be at the top n would u feel cool if Nigerians turn against u dis way in the name of Choice ? Not cool bro”, the fan wrote.

Jollof then responded that not everybody would support him too so his choice should be respected.

He wrote: “@mrpapi333 everybody will not support me either so respect my choice di*ck head.”
